In the Brooder
- Jul 8, 2020
I just moved the babes to their coop for the first time yesterday and I noticed they didn’t roost last night. Will it take a while? What can I expect?
I did put a short roost in their trough. But I put them up there, showed them the stairs.... so I’m hoping I’m a few days.Give it time. They’ve been used to sleeping on the floor up until now most likely. As they become used to their new digs and discover the roost and get older they’ll figure it out. Mine did after a few days. You may have to put a couple of them up there in the evenings to show them what they’re for. And as long the roost are higher than any other spot they may be able to get to they’ll figure it out.
